I was briefly looking through some old photos this morning when I came across a couple that sparked a thought back to the fabulous chat I had at Playfest this week. For those not in the know, Playfest is hosted by izziwizzi kids and is a weekly meet up on Facebook & Twitter for lovely mummies and daddies who want to talk about and inspire each other with children’s toys and play ideas.
This weeks topic was Imagination, providing ideas of how we can help to encourage and develop our own children’s imagination. One question asked about what props we can give our children, with the two most popular answers being cardboard boxes and blankets. This leads on to the photos I came across this morning which completely confirm the ideas of playfest this week and prove that after all these years (more than I wish to remember!!) that cardboard boxes and blankets are a top choice for children’s entertainment and a fabulous aid to help spark their imagination.
Here I am on the left in these two pictures with our homemade den and snuggled in a cardboard box alongside my little brother. How sweet?? xx
